With our expansive product inventory and lengthy resume of carpeting services geared towards homeowners, rental properties and vacation sites, we can help you find the perfect carpet. Whether trendy or traditional, carpeting has many amazing benefits. Modern carpeting can combat the toughest stains and the heaviest usage. Here are some things to consider as you begin browsing carpeting.
Your carpet’s pile, or its inner fibers, will dictate how it looks, feels, and functions. Carpeting can be made from natural pile, like wool, or synthetic pile, like nylon and polyester. Each boasts its own set of perks and benefits. Beyond that type of fiber that is used to create your carpet, you’ll find a variety of brands and performance characteristics when you shop with us. This includes stain-resistant carpets and waterproof carpets, both of which are pet and kid-friendly. We also have commercial carpet flooring and carpet tiles. Unlike broadloom carpets, which are made from one single piece of wall-to-wall carpet, carpet tiles are individual square or rectangular modules that can be replaced on a piece-by-piece basis. This makes them perfect for busy commercial settings.
Nylon fibers are synthetic and extremely durable and wear-resistant. Nylon carpets are one of the toughest options out there, and depending on the quality of the fiber, they can be extremely soft. While not naturally stain-resistant, many nylon carpets have a special stain-treatment that will protect your floor from blemishes.
Polyester fibers are soft, stain-resistant, and relatively durable. Often, polyester carpets are thought of as a budget-friendly alternative to nylon. Depending on the quality of the polyester used, these carpets may not be as tough as their nylon counterparts, but they are luxuriously soft and stain-fighting.
Olefin/polypropylene is a synthetic fiber, like nylon and polyester, but it’s less durable. Olefin carpets are very affordable, and they are highly fade-resistant. You’ll commonly see them recommended for light-use rooms that are sunnier.
Triexta is a newer synthetic fiber that’s growing in popularity and quickly becoming a rival to nylon. While it is technically a cousin of polyester, triexta is more durable. It also has the same stain-resistant qualities as polyester.
Wool is a natural fiber that's popular for being eco-friendly since it comes from a renewable resource. Wool is also biodegradable, making it even more sustainable. Additionally, wool carpets are warm and crush-resistant because their curly structure traps heat and springs back into shape after being walked.
Although carpeting isn’t the best decision for a bathroom or kitchen, there are plenty of carpet choices for the rest of your home! In fact, some carpets can even be used on a porch or a three-season room. There are dense, sturdy carpets designed to tackle your stairs and hallways, as well as velvety plush carpets to grace your living room or master bedroom. And that’s just the beginning.
